This place has the best tempura I have ever eaten. It is placed on top of the best salad ever and is fried to perfection. Definitely a place to go for local fish dinner.

Not being sushi fans, we adventured here for lunch. Great service and patient explanation of the extensive menu. We found that it was. Rey tasty and will take friends next time.

Great food. Highly recommend it. Neighborhood Gem! Dining room is a bit small. They have an outdoor covered patio with more seating.

Small Sushi bar with table dining and an outdoor covered patio. This restaurant is nice, but far less traditional than most sushi establishments. If you have some one in your group that is not a fan of Sushi, but you are....this is the perfect place. You will find a selection of sushi inspired rolls without any items from the sea...... More

Done visiting Fish in a Bottle. I've tried this restaurant several times over the years, each time thinking it might be better this time. I'm done! First, the food is overpriced and mediocre at best. Second, the service sucks and it appears the servers actually truly hate their jobs. Third, the atmosphere has the potential of being a great little... More

Recommend going during the "off" hours: early dinner, late lunch, etc., because during the busy hours, this joint is jumping!! This is probably due to the exceedingly fresh offerings presented in new and different combinations. The service is attentive and you will leave with a VERY HAPPY tummy!

Most of the other sushi restaurants in our neighborhood have gone to the "all you can eat" format. Not here. The sushi and sashimi are excellent, the rolls large and flavorful, and the appetizers are a great start. It's not as cheap as the all you can eat places, but it's worth the extra fare for nice sized portions of... More

This small restaurant has a varied fish and sushi menu. Always crowded and all dishes are interesting in their presentation and very fresh. Loved the menu!

We eat at Fish in a Bottle often. We always ask to sit in Nick's area. He is the best server we have ever had at a restaurant. The food is always amazing and we always compare other. Restaurants to this one and no one compares for taste and value! We will keep coming back and will always sit in... More
